We have MVMCP tickets for December 6th that we got way before they announced the grandopening of Fantasyland. Do you think the grandopening is going to make the Christmas Party crazy busy or busier than it would have been? I'm probably the only person not excited about the grandopening being during their very first December trip.

I got a lunch ADR at CRT for the 20th! Woot! That means I'll have to move our LTT lunch ADR to the 13th or the 14th, but that shouldn't be too hard.

I can't believe that happened!

Question: On the lunch menu, it says there is a "tasting plate". Does anyone know what they normally is? I'm vegan (and put some of my restrictions down - I wish they just had a vegan option!), but I'm curious what is usually provided.

It might be busier than a party in early December would have been otherwise. I think MK during the day will definitely be busier. But if everyone is focused on FL then the rest of the park might not be too bad. If you are going to the party for the Christmas stuff and have a different day for MK, I think you'll be fine. 20 years from now, you can say remember when we were at MK on the opening day of FL??

Thanks!

I think it will be a nice way to end our trip (since that's our last day). Plus, our flight isn't until 8:30 that night, so I don't think we'll need to be on the ME until 5pm or later. Yay!

Its an unknown quantity really - yes, it could be busy but that adds to the atmosphere plus everyone will be in FL.

Or it could go the other way - it may be quieter because lots of people have now decided against going on the 6th because it is the FLE opening.

Either way, you'll have a FAB time

So my FIL is settling in at home. Today I sent them an email listing their options and letting them know that they really don't need to decide until about a week out. (though it goes without saying that I'll be pulling my hair out if they wait that long

MIL wrote back and said that they are still planning to go to their house in FL on Oct 8th. The surgeon cleared him to travel. Still waiting on the therapist. That will tell them how well he can travel. Their biggest concern seems to be the collar. He has to wear it for 3 months which would be through our trip, and it impedes his walking because he can't see his feet. So, they're not making any decisions now.

Overall, I'm feeling good that they didn't cancel outright. That suggests that they do actually want to go ( there have been moments when I wasn't sure). But I also suspect that right now they're focused on getting to FL on the 8th and not much else. After they get down there, then we'll see where things are.

In the mean time, I'm off to book an AKV 1BDR. I want to lock in the discount just in case.

So I am thinking this is a go... I am Disboard computer illiterate so not sure if I would be the best to maintain it. I really like how Tofubeast has maintained this one - it's super awesome.

Tofubeast... Would you give us the honor....pretty please? Do you have time or interest in this?

I'll be posting quick updates while I'm in the parks via my phone. Especially if certain things work out


This is your REQUIRED DISboard live trip update!!


I read the same thread! Glad to know the CMs are understanding, but hopefully I won't need those tips anytime soon. Mom wouldn't be happy with that announcement...lol

I read that thread too... Granted I do have a 3 yo... But still kinda dont know about others bed wetting


Works for me! I'll be updating my Facebook on the fly, along with quick updates here, but I'm sure I'll be posting my big stories on The DIS once I get home.

So this is odd. Not only is the GP discount gone for AKV for my dates. But it's gone for my entire two-week trip for *every* resort. Plenty of resort availability and It doesn't expire for a couple days so know idea what's up with that.

Not a huge deal since it was only 5% but its odd. The 1BDR Savannah view is still available. I'm on a conference call now (working from home). But when I'm done I'm going to book it. Then, if the in-laws don't go I'll cancel the 2BDR and if they do go, I'll cancel the 1BDR. I hate holding two rooms but there's just too much money at stake to wait and lose the option.

There was a thread on the TPAS that the website has had a glitch today. Resorts arent showing for any discounts.

Try calling in. Others are having that issue, but are able to book what they need when calling.

I guess I won't be the only one stalking ADRs. I'm trying for an early breakfast on 12/5, someone was nice enough to try and cancel when I could grab their ADR for 830 am breakfast at CP. but I tried for 15 minutes and never got it. I'd love to have CRT but would take CP
